This item is still under review by the feature team. I have no details as to when a decision might happen.

As is the functionality of this is on par or less than what I am used to getting for free.
Frustrated and my recommendation to my company is to get rid of 365 entirely if this is what it is like.
Used Basecamp previously and it had it's flaws regarding file storage, but at least I got notifications when there was something new in my projects. I never had to open the app to look and see if there is an active conversation thread.
